musings & matters of two Pinoys

Pinoy lifestyle and review blog: a dash of food, travel, tech and everything else.

About Us

An outlet of experiences made and musings thought of, Manila Pepper is the brainchild of partners M&N.

A Pinoy lifestyle and review blog. Stay updated with us as we share our food, travel and tech matters.

M is an experienced graphic designer that has an on and off affinity for the written words. Never having the opportunity to immerse fully, Manila Pepper was the initial push to exert years worth of unrefined and unattended passion.

Having dabbled on a lottery of interests including design, photography, several biz, and now web design, N is the push to the unmoving M. A doer in the best definition of the word, it was N that made this return of Manila Pepper happen.

Like many other results bought on by the 2020 quarantine, what started out as mainly a food blog four years ago is now back, rephrased. With a renewed mindset to tackle all things to interest Manileños, Filipinos, and anyone else, it’s time yet again to add that dash.
